Time Magazine’s recent COVER story is more propaganda about how maybe, just maybe, it might be time to rewrite the United States Constituion.
Taking the old “where are the dead bodies,” we can ask: “What is wrong with America that we need to change the Constitution?”
Seriously. The reason we have so much freedom for socialists to parade around ideas and rallies is dependent on two things: our Constitution, and our almost unimaginable wealth, which is a direct result of a country run by a philosophy of individual liberties and regulated government which is composed by everyday citizens and is accountable to everyday citizens.
The socialists hate this. They cannot get their way in a country where they will be accountable. Where they don’t get to set all of the rules. Where they are not able to punish those who have the ideas and drive to stop them in their tracks.
They see this about us here in the U.S. Once they can shift power so that our style of govt is no longer in operation, then they can make the next big move, the next great revolution and evolution toward Marx’s utopia governed by elite intellectuals.
To make all of this palatable, they have to proceed in a certain way. First, keep up the ‘consciousness-raising:’ this is when you take a few observations, and brainstorm a few ideas about it, and get the topic rolling. Then, you explore the implications of these ideas: what if this, what if that, do you think this might work, could we do that better, is this really OK, and so on. All seemingly speculative.
Then, as that discussion ball gets rolling, define some position, and make it attractive, partly based on the previous two steps: hey, these observations suggest some change might be needed, added to hey, here is a proposal people have been talking about.
Finally, the Bolshevik: label those who oppose your ideas as interfering with humane, decent govt. Lock them up. Label them as evil.
These Chicago and Harvard people have been discussing changing the Constitution for several years. Cass Sunstein has published books on this. Recently, Goodwin Liu has jumped in on this game. Sarah Herlihy has written about this. These people all know each other. This discussion is not just bubbling up out of the populis; this is a strategic move from the combination of elitist totalitarians and international socialists (plenty of room for overlap there).
The TIME article shows that these people are talking to each other – TIME is one of them anyway – and have already advanced to the harsh name-calling: they are claiming that the problem with our Constitution (what problem? where? where are the dead bodies?) is that it supports an ‘extreme right-wing idealogy.’
Gee, I never realized how bad things have gotten. Is that so?
Given that the Constitution might actually be performing this function, what should we do: expand a bunch of entitlement rights, or figure out how the right-wing extremism might be checked?
As a ‘remedy,’ should we declare that a panel of Harvard profs should decide what is in the news and on the internet, and develop a feed of info so that we are all well-informed, or should we just outlaw whatever is wrong? Mlitias threatening to blow up buildings? Hey, there’s already an app for that.
Gun ownership? Hey there are already apps for that.
A president must be a natural-born citizen? Well, we could all decide, thru the normal Const change principal, to modify the Const. But no, these people are not talking abt tidying up some not-well-specified language abt citizenship; they are talking about adding a list of rights that they imagine will make the U.S. and even better experiment.
Problem is: we know where these go. We hand over our lives to a handful of intelligencia dictators and we become Bolshevik Russia, or Cuba, or wherever we have played this out already.
Here is one of their leading organizations/platforms:
OK, now I have tipped you off. Go read for yourself. And keep one thing in mind: they are not going to walk up to you and declare they are elitist totalitarians, or International Marxists. You have to spend some time in thought, and maybe discussion, and maybe studying history, to figure out: why are things so good here that we rose to be an international world power and benefactor within 150 years? Why are ppl suffering at the hands of ruithless coyotes to get shuttled into this coutry illegally? Why are foreign medical care personnel and engineers so driven to be the tops of their class, then sign up to come here, when the best and brightest of the planet are in position to go anywhere?
And, how could we mess this up?
Well, maybe it is TIME for you to quit nodding your head at the rhetoric, and quit signing all of those meaningless petitions, and start figuring some things out. Read Sunstein and Liu and TIME and Herlihy for yourself. Why are the same usual suspects in the middle of the Spring Uprising the week after they were at the Michigan pro-union rallies?
